Extractions are either performed in the office or you will be referred to an oral surgeon. The decision is based on a number of factors including the type of tooth to be extracted, the number of teeth, your medical history, the need for intravenous or general anesthesia, and patient preference. We always keep in mind what's best for you, the patient.

The oral surgeons we work with all have comprehensive and rigorous training with anesthesia. Most of them are M.D.'s in addition to their specialty in oral and maxillo-facial surgery.
